Brilliant combination of history and culture on your journey through Rajasthan
Fantastic experience seeing the Taj Mahal at sunrise, when the monument is at its most beautiful
A chance to see the highlights of Rajasthan alongside slightly more off the beaten track experiences such as village walks
Lovely paced itinerary allowing plenty of time to explore each destination and city within Rajasthan
Rajasthan is known as the desert state. It is largely hot and dry throughout the year, making it a great destination to get away during cold winter months.
Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It’s the hottest season so not ideal for travel, although early April is a good time to get great value for money if you don’t mind the heat. In western Rajasthan temperatures may soar, particularly in May and June, so we'd suggest avoiding Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert at this time.
The monsoon season usually runs from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. During this period 90% of the rain Rajasthan occurs, although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall. Lakes and rivers will be higher and there's more colour to the landscape.
October to March is the best time to travel to Rajasthan. Expect warm and sunny weather, perfect for exploring and relaxing. Please note that hotels are at their busiest over the Christmas and New Year period. December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also normal to expect some fog in the major cities of northern Rajasthan in December and January.
This classic itinerary allows you to visit some of the main highlights of one of India’s most romantic states, Rajasthan. With stops in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Udaipur all accompanied by your private guide and driver this small taste of India is sure to start a life long love affair.
Starting off in Delhi you will have two nights in this vibrant city to start. This vast metropolis always has something new and exciting to explore and with your private guide you’ll be able to visit the historical monuments of the Red Fort and Jama Masjid alongside the financial and technology hub of Gurgaon with it far-reaching skyscrapers. In Old Delhi we have also included a rickshaw ride for you, which is a brilliant way to explore this ancient walled city.
From Delhi, you will take an early morning train to Agra taking just over two hours. Here you’ll be able to discover the romance of the Taj Mahal and understand yourself why this building is so well known throughout the world. Alongside the Taj Mahal there is an array of sites to visit dating back to the Mughal empire including the Agra Fort and several fascinating tombs and mausoleums. This history is fascinating, and your guide will be on hand to bring it all to life for you.
On the morning you leave Agra, we have included a sunrise tour of the Taj Mahal for you, the most beautiful time to see this testament to love. From here, you’ll then drive west onto Jaipur which normally takes just over four hours, but we have included a stop in Fatehpur Sikri to break up your journey allowing you to explore the beautiful red sandstone relics in the city.
For your final stop of the trip, you will take a short flight of just over an hour from Jaipur to Udaipur, India’s ‘City of Lakes.’ Beautifully positioned, Udaipur is a charming city to explore and we have included a boat ride along the lake for a unique view of the city. Over your two nights here you’ll also be able to visit the City Palace which still plays home to the local royal family, the beautiful garden of maids and the Crystal Gallery. On your final day in the city we have included a tour of Jagdish Temple, situated right in the heart of the city before taking a walking tour of Old Udaipur, full of beautiful havelis, ghats and temples. On departure from Udaipur you will take a flight back to Delhi where you can connect to your international flight home or continue on your adventure.
